Butterfly Effect Book- DIY INSERTS!

 In Davenparty

G’day Friends!


So we’re all loving our Butterfly Effect Books, but if you’re anything like me you’ve probably been too timid to start drawing on that great quality planner insert!


Well, I have found a way to ease yourself into it… Create your own!


This step-by-step tutorial video will show you how to create a planner insert to perfectly compliment the gorgeous quality inserts that come with your Butterfly Book. I’ve got a few different options to show you and it’s a great way to use any of those loose sheets of paper floating around (or to custom create an insert with your favourite papers).


Be as crafty or precise as you want, but be careful, once you make one you’re going to want to make a hundred more!

    So cool James. I’ve been sewing up 3 hole pamphlet stitch books, denying myself the added expense of a long reach stapler. Your ideas and enthusiasm are contagious. Thank you!

    Nice video James. I have made almost all of mine and love that I can personalize them to my taste. Plus the cost savings to use on other things.

    Good way to use up papers that I have – I have WAY to many from my scrapbooking days. But this is a great video to share with folks.

    This was an awesome tutorial. I didn’t think I could learn anything from it, but I did. Big time. No need to be so fussy with edges and such. The staples idea. AND I always get distracted by the tools and certain supplies people are using in video’s and I was so happy to find myself just wanting to start making inserts instead of shopping online! Well done, sir! Thanks so much. Oh, and the embroidery cover is genius!

    Such a great idea. I have pages of loose art that I’ve created over time, and now I know exactly what to do with them! Thanks so much James, you’re sweet and make great videos!
